What is ultimately bizarre about evolution is there is both overwhelming evidence against it, and overwhelming evidence for it. Since that sentence probably made no sense to you, I would personally conclude that evolution is a developing theory that at present, has many flaws. To my understanding, the 7 day creation can be both interpreted metaphorically, or literally (in the Orthodox Church), depending on the individual, but whichever is right, it is irrelevant to the faith. It is more of scientific argument than a theological one, and the church shouldn't try to get involved in science, since ecclesiastical involvement is a blatant integration of rationalism and theology.
I've spent most of my life in a hard core Protestant school, which was big on Creationism vs. Evolution, and that anything else besides the literal interpretation was heresy. Although I didn't realize it, it was the result of trying to turn the Bible into a science textbook. I remember being taught that dinosaurs were actually not extinct, and somehow that disproved evolution.
